Gao at Warwick! Geeeee !!

Me aint goin a-grumble about my first year in the UK, that's for sure. So far, it's been simply Fab. I've attended readings and papers by Slavoj Zizek, Pankaj Mishra, David Harvey, Gilbert Achcar, Laura Marcus, Dave Morley, Barbara Harlow coming next week and many others. I've seen Ladysmith Black Mambaso,  and Orchestra Baobab, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Bolshoi, Natalie Clein live. The magic just won't have breaks. Next is Chinese writer, painter and thinker Gao Xingjian, author of the powerful 'Soul Mountain' and Nobel Literature Laureate 2000, at the Conference Hall of the Warwcik Arts Centre, 14th of May 8pm. Fantastic op to meet the giant thinker face to face. By giant thinker I mean precisely that, a mind that has managed to coax literary rhetoricity, indeed, thought itself as Louis Althusser would have it, to daunting extents without compromising on the singularity of his subjectivity. A writer that, as his latest works of fiction suggest, keeps misprisioning his writerly solitude in order to extract innovative voltas around the inescapable predicaments of human-ness. Go Go Gao!
